Beck's album Colors comes three years after his Grammy-winning 2014 LP Morning Phase, one of the longest gestation periods of his recording career. "I suppose the record could have come out a year or two ago," Beck told Rolling Stone. "But these are complex songs all trying to do two or three things at once. It's not retro and not modern. To get everything to sit together so it doesn't sound like a huge mess was quite an undertaking."
Produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Sia, Halsey, Foo Fighters), who toured as Beck's keyboardist during 2002's Sea Change tour, Colors was recorded in Kurstin's L.A. studio where he and Beck played nearly every instrument themselves.
"The best songs make you glad to be alive," said Beck in the Rolling Stone interview. "It doesn't matter if it's Beethoven or the Monkees. That's what I was thinking about a lot."
Beck is a 6-time Grammy winner (incuding 2015 Album of the Year) with four #1 singles spanning 3 decades and over 10 million albums sold worldwide.
"After the mellow gold sounds of his folk-rock Grammy magnet Morning Phase, Beck's latest pivots into of-the-moment big-box pop music. It's not parody though the baked old-school flow on the trippy trap track 'Wow' is laugh-out-loud funny. Instead, it does something tougher, locating the sublime in the music many love to hate, while connecting its truths to a broader pop history. 'Dear Life' nods to both the Beatles and late virtuoso Elliott Smith, and the title track apparently jacked its flow from Melle Mel's 'White Lines.' And 'Dreams' glistens like a John Chamberlain car wreck sculpture: chrome-plated funk with twisted, pitch-shifted vocals and Seventies stadium rock flourishes. It makes mass-market pop science feel positively artisanal." - Rolling Stone, 50 Best Albums of 2017
